It’s been a couple week since I was able to blog anything! July has been one thing after another, all things that I’m in charge of planning and/or organizing, so there has not been time for much of anything else. The month started with the 4th of July, then went straight into activities for our local festival, I’ve been teaching a Junior Jazzercise class the last couple of weeks (which ends next Wednesday), and then we’ve had 4-H activities! This week is fair week, so we got Faith’s projects wrapped up over the weekend and set up our club’s booth last night. Tonight will be the first night in a while that I don’t have anything major pending to do so I plan to work from the couch and take it easy. I hate to wish summer away but I will be glad when July is over!
For Faith’s final 4-H projects we had decided to decorate a wood “F” that we’d picked up for $5 at an antique store in town over a year ago and a lampshade from Target. We are going to be redecorating her bedroom so these doubled as both 4-H projects and new accessories!
The original plan was to make a photo collage on the “F”, but when she realized the photos would be glued down and not changeable, she ditched the idea and wanted splatter paint. This former 80’s kid was taken back, slightly excited and a little like, “Whuuuu?”, all at the same time. Where did THIS come from?
When we’ve had a spare moment this month, we’ve been enjoying feeding the geese at the lakes. Faith got brave and fed them from her hand and she’s just loving it!
